No Fly Zone over Gaza

No Fly Zone over GAZA

When Libya initiated its protests and revolution against Moammar Gaddafi, there were plenty of calls for a No fly zone. Libya is very much different from Gaza, and the rest of Palestine. For one, Libya has about 2% of the world's supply of oil. It is for this reason, among others, that made the no fly zone argument appealing to the imperialists such as the United States and its allies. 

Gaza has been under a siege for over 2 years. To be price, 1397 days under a blockade. And over that time span, not once has there been a call for a no fly zone from any imperialist. It is only very recently that the Arab League has initiated a call for a No fly zone over Gaza.

My question to you is: 
Why did the Arab League wait so long to make this call?

Don't the lives of Gazans matter? Are they not human as well? Don't they want the same as any other human being on this planet: feeling safe from Israeli warfare?

Answer to all three: YES.
